Boko Haram: Some Abducted Chibok Girls Refused To ‘Return’ – Negotiator Says

A legal practitioner and one of the mediators for the release of the 82
Chibok school girls, Zannah Mustapha, has disclosed that some of the
abducted Chibok school girls who are still in Boko Haram captivity,
refused to be freed during the last negotiation that led to the release
of 82 girls last Saturday. Speaking with Reuters, Mustapha said some of
the girls have been radicalised.

“Some girls refused to return. I have never talked to one of the girls
about their reasons. As a mediator, it is not part of my mandate to
force them to return home”he said

On Saturday May 6th, 82 of the Chibok girls were released after a prison
swap by the Federal government with some imprisoned Boko Haram members.
